After Applying Latest Updates KDE | Gnome Displays Bad



Last night I applied the latest Fedora 11 (Rawhide) updates
which included updates to X. Now both my KDE and Gnome
Displays are damaged. One symptom is that the background
color for all panels is BLACK. As this problem occurs for
both KDE and Gnome I am assuming that there is an X
problem.

Hi,

I've just noticed that the GNOME clock applet (clock-applet) has Tuesday

Is there something bizarrely wrong with my locale, and if so how do I
change it?

Or is it an upstream bug?
    

It could be a locale specific bug since I don't see it. Do file a bug
report in http://bugzilla.redhat.com

I guess that's the kind of answer an inexperienced guy would give.  Mine
didn't work after I installed Vmware because it wouldn't compile, so I
switched to akmod and mine worked.  I forgot that I have a friend that
sent me some packages also to install. I am still having trouble because
I have to force quit.  Sorry for the incorrect answer to your problem.


    
Your problem was with vmware kernel modules. But mine is another thing.
I don't know, maybe it's better to report it on vmware forums.

Best,
Adrin.

I could be wrong, but since there's no source code in nautilus-sendto
concerning gajim, in which case, it's not really a bug, just a TODO.
You should probably file a RFE with the upstream in that case.

   
    

There is an option allowing the build of the gajim plugin of 
nautilus-sendto. The package from rawhide may have been built without 
it. Should I fill a bug ?

About the thunderbird/Evolution part, I filled a bug.

Using Dell laptop XPS with f11 beta since 4 weeks ago and it seems the
power manager was always ok.
Tipically life of my batter is about 2 hours at the moment (battery
has one year of life)

I update every day rawhide (or as soon as available) and at the moment I have:
gnome-power-manager-2.26.0-2.fc11.x86_64
applied on Apr 24 11:20:32, so the problem below could be an effect of
this update.
I powered off the laptop on Friday evening fully charged (with cable connected).
Today I started it with cable disconnected.
I saw a strange icon for battery after about 10 minutes.... in the
sense that it was the icon when you are almost out of charge at all.
So i pointed the mouse and saw the tooltip saying

1h30minutes remaining in term of time (correct), but only 0,4% in term
of percentage......

Just in case I suddenly plug the cable but the shutdown procedure
began and the laptop powered off itself....

the good is that with f10 I was never able to get it ;-)
the bad was that actually the correct measure was the one with the
time (1h30min)...
I report it because it seems that what fixed in changelog is not
exactly related with my case....

Anyone else? Anyway  I'm going to update and see if this is fixed....

It is my understanding that since ext4 will be the default fs for F11,
existing non-boot ext3 partitions are converted to ext4 as part of the
upgrade from F9/10 to F11. Whether there is an option given to the user,
I can't say at this point - probably not.

Since the upgraded system is different from the original F9/F10 starting
point (in many ways - ext4 is just one), any repeated testing (necessary
- because the first few trials will fail..) will require a restore of
the F9/F10 system before the next test.

I think it is only fair to the testers to make this point upfront before
they test the Upgrade.

  
    
The file system did not be converted to ext4 after upgrade.I tested this 
on VM.
After upgrade ,we can see such output:

I don't know. I'd first done yum groupinstall virtualization. As I 
remember, that only brought in qemu-img. When that didn't work I 
installed qemu*x86. I may have installed qemu-user also. Finally yum 
install qemu*. Then it worked.

Any clues on paravirtualization?
